PlatinumThis timeless Princess 61 offers an incredible value proposition: To own a yacht in the Côte d’Azur. for just £50,000.

Based in Cannes, she’s more than capable of cruising the French and Italian Rivieras as well as Corsica & Sardinia. Her 3 spacious en suite cabins make her a real holiday home in the sun – one that offers exciting new horizons each time you visit.

This syndicate is made up of 6 shareholders each enjoying 8 weeks use a year. There is an even spread of retirees and parents with school age children. This means there is a broad cross-section of preferences regarding the choice of school holidays, and those who prefer to avoid time on board during those periods.

Having a full-time Capt on board means this yacht is incredibly well maintained and offers co-owners greater freedoms to cruise locally – or cover greater distances without having to return to its home port for change-over days. Some co-owners agree to work together to create back-to-back itineraries, where one co-owner visits say Corsica or Sardinia on her, and the other picks her up there and subsequently returns her again to her home berth in Cannes.

The essence of this syndicate is to create exceptional value boating, coupled with exceptional cruising capabilities.

This syndicate is a Fractional Association Platinum Member, working to the association’s Code of Conduct and fulfil their Maintenance Management criteria. This includes an owners’ website for the selection of their weeks, a communication forum and real time access to the management accounts.
